to the debate. captioning funded by cbs >>joe biden and paul ryan clashed time after time. mitt romney building momentum after the presidential debate. >> cbs news took a poll of uncommitted voters who watched the debate. 50% said biden won, 31% said ryan won and 19% said it was a tie. >> 55% said biden was someone they could relate to. ryan's reliability went up. and 85% said biden was knowledgeable about the issues. jan, good morning? >> reporter: good morning. the president last week tried to explain his lackluster debate performance by saying he was too polite. well the vice president sure can't say that about his performance last night. he came roaring out of the block, he never slowed down to the point the republicans this morning are making that a talking point. they say he interrupted paul ryan 82 times. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of malarky. >> reporter: the vice president appeared to take the president's advice. joe just needs to be joe. >> is this a bunch of stuff. look here's the deal. >> reporter: biden's giant personality went into overdrive. within second he interrupt
attempt to balance the budget. and what ryan and romney are calling is outrageously stupid. what the president is doing is inadequate. >> okay. al? >> good description. nothing partisan about that description. you know, al, the governor brings up a point. i'm not sure that i agree with how he describes the two sides, but i will say that when joe biden -- let's just take these two issues right here. to talk about the stupidity of this campaign. joe biden won't even talk about raising entitlement -- your date of eligibility for entitlements one year despite the fact when fdr set the life expectancy at 62, we're now up, 79, 80, something like that. and you've got three people working for every one person getting these entitlements. and then on the republican side, this $5 trillion tax cut, the numbers don't add up. it doesn't matter what you do. the numbers don't add up. nor does the administration's belief that if you just tax rich guys, you're going to take care of the deficit. it's just -- it's nonsense. >> joe, you're absolutely right. neither side is seriously addressing this.
for mitt romney and ryan to say. host: were you hired because of the convention and then laid off after word? caller: i was hired away before the convention. but the thing was that i got fired for unnecessary reasons. they were just during layoffs and layoffs at and things. i think obama said it best when he ran in 2008. we're going to go through bad times. you have to go out before you can get good. -- go bad before you can get good. he said this was going to take us some time, but we are going to get through it. it is going to get hard before it gets good. if we unite together and work together as a country. host: we will leave it there. but go to john in long beach. tell us your story appeared caller: i've never voted, but i have -- tell us your story. caller: i have never voted, but i have followed the politics. i grew up in south beach and in alaska. i always wondered why the politicians never talked about the old issues, the war on drugs that kind of thing. i just don't know where we are coming from these days. host: what is a real issue to you? the war on drugs is a real issue? c
people. we will lose our credibility on this. >> what would romney/ryan do? >> we agree with chemical weapons, but not about putting troops in. what we should have done earlier is work with those freedom fighters, those in syria. we should not have called assad a reformer. we should not have voided for russia to give us the green light at the u. n. they are still arming the man. they are flying flights over iraq to help assad. if we had the agreement he said about ira, we probably would have prevented that. >> let me ask you quickly what is your criteria for intervention. >> in syria? what is in the interests of the american people. >> no humanitarian. >> each situation will come up with its own set of circumstances. putting american troops on the ground, that has to be within the national security interests of the american people. embargoes and sanctions -- those are things that do not put american troops on the ground. if you are talking about putting troops on the ground, only in our interests. >> i want to return home for the last few questions. this debate is historic. we have tw
to want to really frame a negative message against romney and ryan, and pick up where the president didn't do that well last week, or didn't mention at all, thinking of issues like the auto ballot, social security, the ryan proposal on that. the medicare issue, the 47% comment that romney made and people were stunned that obama didn't mention that last week. and, of course, romney's income taxes and how he made his money at bain consulting. those are all issues i think we will hear from joe biden on. and it is very different than what biden's pass was four years ago, steve, as you recall facing sarah palin. the biggest challenge been for biden was don't patronize sarah palin, don't bully sarah palin certainly, try to a quarter to a certain degree of respect. i think this is a different time, and paul ryan is a different opponent. >> there's been what some are calling the rebuttal as both congressman paul ryan, republican vice president to nominate and vice president biden try to set expectations for the debate on thursday. let me share with you will paul ryan said on the fox news channel
have gotten the tone and the argument right to come back at what romney and ryan are doing at them. and that tees it up for the debate at hofstra last week. >> and i even likened to like the world cup, remember you got the two teams in the finals and then the guys they beat they play in that game for -- i mean, this was interesting, but it just sets up the next debate to see how the president comes back. >> tuesday night. so this comes very quickly. >> and i watched intrade, it moved up a little. and then all the way back to where it started. >> it's exactly the way the reds are set up for the next round of the playoffs. >> you know, john, here's the thing. they did lose three straight, i'll and i had plit thdmit that. but after spotting them six runs on that grand slam, they battled back. and in the sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth, they had the tying run at home every inning. one inning they had a man on first and second, no outs, the count 3-2, a bad call, they threw the guy out at third. we can't talk -- anyway, i'm not going to obsess over this. >> pain. >> did you catch the j
. congressman ryan is smart and effective speaker but his ideas are the wrong ones. >> steve: we have seen a lot of polls on republican mitt romney and we will like to show you this. joe biden has more unfavorable than favorables. paul ryan plus 16 and that may due to the fact. can do record still being introduced in the country. he will get a chance to get better acquainted with folks who don't know him better tonight. >> gretchen: thank you so much. we'll talk to you soon. >> brian: i believe that this would be the most consequential debate. because of how poorly the president did. every 10 people that you talk tompt 7 out of 10 said that the president got crushed. momentum is firmly in the romney camp and now 42 year old paul ryan against 69 year old joe biden and a guy who has been studying fervantly has to take on the whiz kid from congress. is he capable of stopping the bleeding. >> steve: the moderator will be martha ratz. she's the moderator and she is a long-time correspondant for abc news. she is the moderator of the vp debate. guess what was in attendance of her wedding in 1991 when s
